South Africa’s design ‘learnerships’


Thekwini Further Education and Training College in Durban, the commercial and cultural hub of Kwa Zulu Natal Province, offers artistic community and diploma level craft and design programs.

They target existing artists, and focus on entrepreneurship, marketing development, and product improvement. Beginners can enroll in “Learnerships,” a holistic approach leading to National Qualification Certificates at various levels.  

The college also works on community projects. The Thekwini Cato Manor skills development centre is partnering with Sukuma, a local community organization, on various cultural industry initiatives, including arts & crafts.

At diploma level, they have design programs in Arts, Fashion & Industry.
